LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – TMZ.com has obtained an audio tape of O.J. Simpson’s confrontation with a sports memorabilia dealer that led to his arrest on felony robbery charges. In it, you hear someone say, “You against the motherf*****g wall.”
TMZ report that the tape was recorded by Thomas Riccio, who co-owns the auction house Universal Rarities. Riccio met up with Simpson just before the confrontation at the Palace Station Casino on Thursday night.
Riccio turned his Olympus digital voice recorder on before the group entered the room — a group that included Simpson and four other men. Almost immediately, Simpson went wild, hurling profanities at auctioneer Alfred Beardsley and another memorabilia dealer, Bruce Fromong.
